"You should be prepared to defend yourself from any kind of attack" – I guess you've heard this line many times before. Since we were kids, we always listened that there are bad people (or a big bad wolf) out there, trying to get to us. With the rise of the Internet, things only got more complicated. It wasn't enough to just play it safe, and avoid any suspicious pages and resources. They were attacking us practically on our cyber doorstep – right into our e-mail boxes. So, we had to act fast and figure out how to protect ourselves from one of the most common forms of cyber-attack – phishing. What exactly is phishing? One of the easiest forms ...

By Daniel J. Lemieux, AIA, RIBA and Nicholas E. Ozog, PE Energy efficiency and conservation of our natural resources have arguably become two of the most significant influences on the design and construction of our built environment. The demand for deep-energy retrofits and adaptive reuse of post-war and more recently constructed modern and post-modern built assets is a reflection of this trend. In the wrong hands, this demand can create fertile ground for the introduction of exterior wall components and materials that may increase the risk for fire, particularly when regulatory enforcement is weak, product substitutions are not fully vetted and untested products ...

As I sit here and stare at this box of bolts, this combination of wires, RAM, and blinking LEDs, I glare at this machine that performs countless millions of complex permutations in mere seconds, I think to myself, “Where’s the love?” It’s in there. And it’s out there. It is the multi-billion dollar industry spawned by the simplest of human needs: the never-ending search for love. It’s cyberdating, and it’s a good thing. Literally, at the click of a mouse, the woman of your dreams is at your finger tips. And you should try it! I’m finding it ever more difficult to find a gal that I like and that also likes me.

Architects can lose their licenses, and this can have a lasting impact on their careers. Licensing is often a requirement when an architect is working on commercial buildings, but the requirements will vary from state-to-state. Generally, when an architect is working on a high-rise building, shopping mall or other commercial project, a valid license is required. The cost of the project may also determine that a license isn’t required. For example, some states will only require a license if the work is over $25,000. Obtaining a license is the easy part, but holding on to the license can be very difficult. Follow your state’s laws and adhere to a ...

Architects must have insurance. If a design goes wrong, the architect firm can be held liable for damages. Commercial general liability is a great start to protect a firm, but is it enough? It depends. There are times even when a valid claim is denied . Bad faith can and does happen, and it can be very costly to sue an insurance company. If a case is won, the insurance company will be made to pay legal fees which can be on top of compensation for the insurance bad faith. How Bad Faith Insurance Works Bad faith insurance is when the insurance company looks for ways to escape its obligation. Let's assume that your policy covers the risk of ...

  The reasons why you may want to leave your current home behind can be extremely various. The most common one is moving to another place that fits your needs better. Instead of putting your house up forthe sale, you can actually turn it into a business. The process will involve some effort indeed, and you still have to strive for the highest value when preparing your house for becoming a rental, but the result is so rewarding that it might exceed your expectations. Converting your current home into a rental is a requirement when you can’t seem to sell it no matter what you do.
